Awkward Family Photos

I was going through some family photo albums the other day, and came to the conclusion that my greatest achievement as a child was ruining family photos. I wore my disgust with family photography on my face like a first birthday cake, or tried to escape such situations entirely.

Really, I understand my past reluctance to have certain stages of my life memorialized (i.e. the solid year or so where I looked exactly like a miniature Garth from Wayne's World.  See below.)

"Party on, Wayne!"

Maybe I thought that if I put forth minimal effort, these pictures would be tucked away in an attic somewhere, never to be seen by the public eye.  Little Jenna never foresaw that she would one day become a self-depricating Benedict Arnold, perfectly willing to expose the embarrassing photos from her past.

Anyway, without further ado, here are some of my favorites:

Pissed-Off Baby Elvis

Come Hither

Escape Artist

Baptism Blues

Eskimo Hostage

Chris Farley


Sugar High

Slow: Child Posing

And I rest my case.


  1. Can you get that last warning in the shape of a turtle holding a sign? I now want to buy you some ice cream to try to recreate the sugar face.

    1. Haha! It would be more effective in slow green turtle form. And I'm always up for ice cream! Come back to WV and I promise we will get some.

  2. I love your sugar high face :)
